All grants must meet submission criteria assigned by the Foundation of the National Lipid Association grants review committee prior to being accepted for funding.

The Online Application Process
An online Grant Application Form and complete instructions can be found on this site. To start, either login to your existing grant system account or create a grant system account as appropriate below. A single account can apply for and manage multiple grant submissions, therefore you do not need a new account for each grant application submitted. By registering, you can save your online grant applications and complete them at your convenience. In addition, you can check on the status of your pending applications. It's easy, and it's password-protected to ensure security.
Please note that completed applications, including all supporting documentation, must be submitted at least 60 business days prior to the date you need to receive a funding decision regarding your grant application. Each application is given careful consideration as part of a rigorous evaluation by the Foundation Grants Review Committee. Accordingly, it may take up to three weeks for you to receive a decision regarding your application. Once approved, grant payments will be made within two weeks (10 business days).
Please also note that at this time, the Foundation only accepts requests for research, medical education, hardship, and community outreach grants.
